How Powered Fiber Makes Deployment of IoT Devices Easier

by Teddi Strassburger on October 13, 2021

pexels-scott-webb-305833When you think about upgrading the systems within your building to enable new applications and smarter processes, of course, your next thought may be about the challenges that can come with deploying all of those systems. The Internet of Things (IoT) brings so many opportunities, but we have to consider the obstacles, as well. Think about all of the technologies you may want to install - what about HD cameras, WiFi hotspots or small cells for cellular networks? How do you connect all of these increasingly necessary technologies as efficiently as possible? 

Simplifying the deployment and installation of Integrated Buildings devices, while optimizing their performance within the building, is essential for network operators. Powered fiber is the solution. With powered fiber, you can deploy a system consisting of hybrid cables containing copper wires and fiber-optic cores that feed power and data to PoE extender devices, thus extending the network coverage indoors or outdoors up to a distance of 3 kilometers (almost 2 miles!) and enabling you to place your smart devices wherever you need them. 

Powered fiber works by incorporating DC power over copper wires and fiber-based Ethernet connectivity into a single cable, giving you everything you need in order to install PoE equipment at much, much longer distances than PoE would typically allow. The copper wires included in a powered fiber cable are optimized to deliver power, and they're thicker than the typical twisted-pair copper cables. Imagine being able to extend power to security cameras or WiFi access points two miles away - that's what powered fiber enables you to do. 

It's easy to see why powered fiber is such an ideal solution for university campuses, airports and the like. Powered fiber intelligently combines high-performance and low latency fiber optic data connectivity with a copper low-voltage DC power connection, helping you deploy and install the technologies you require in your smart building or campus. With powered fiber, you're able to bring any of the following to your network (and more!): 

  • Optical LAN
  • Emergency phones
  • HD security cameras
  • Digital signage
  • Wi-Fi access points
  • Small cells

CommScope's Powered Fiber Cable System enables you to take advantage of these new opportunities. With their innovative hybrid cable (combining power and data connectivity) and PoE Extender, you can eliminate the need for complex custom engineering for each connected device you bring to the network and enjoy the benefits of ease of deployment and increased efficiency. The Powered Fiber Cable System also incorporates fiber-to-copper media conversion, so it speeds up the design work and makes the overall solution more reliable.
